The Oxford Trobadors

Bengali and European Folk in Fusion

Tickets £12 to £50

To celebrate the return of The Oxford Trobadors after 2 years of the pandemic, they will perform a fusion concert with Bengali folk musicians in Oxford’s historic Sheldonian Theatre on Sunday 5th June. Remarkably, medieval and modern trobador songs and Bengali folk music have a lot in common but this is the first time that fusion has been discovered to work brilliantly in practice. The programme will draw its inspiration from the Baul songs of Shah Abdul Karim in the East and from the Occitan Trobadors in the West, including many of the favourites, medieval and modern, so enthusiastically appreciated by audiences. The event will be a great family day-out treat. The melodies are catching, so the audience will be welcome to join in our choruses. Your hosts will be HE Anwar Choudhury, formerly High Commissioner to Bangladesh, and Professor Denis Noble, world-famous biologist and founder of The Oxford Trobadors. Don’t miss this unique celebration of two great musical cultures.
